prickly cactus: MFT Stamps March Release Countdown



Welcome to the MFT Stamps Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, stencils, and colors that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, March 1 at 9 pm Central.

Don't tell the other stamps this month, but Sweet Succulents is my favorite set from the March release! Laina Lamb is always perfectly on trend! 

Each of the cactus and planters in Sweet Succulents has a coordinating die in Die-namics Sweet Succulents! I love how well they work together. I was doing some one-layer stamping and masking the two was easy also! Brilliant designing!

Coloring the images was a ton of fun! I found tons of great color ideas on Pinterest. Watercolor images, realistic images, and even silly ones! When coloring images like this, I like having a reference. You can tell I used my color pencils again. I am addicted.

On the background, I stamped the new background image, Geometric Background. I heat embossed it with white powder on watercolor paper. Tangy Orange, Safety Orange, and Chocolate Brown inks were mixed together to create a terra cotta look. The sentiments in the Sweet Succulents are fantastic too!! Put this on your must-have list!

Visit the MFT Stamps blog for all the information you will need about the upcoming release. That includes product images, product videos, links to the design team projects, and more! Plus, there always seems to be a chance to win!

thanks for stopping by!
